Abstract

Using a typewriter to place X's in the correct boxes and certain required data in the correct spaces on a form is a challenging job on the basic typewriter. The form must be correctly aligned, and the data must fit the allocated space. It becomes even a bigger challenge on a word processor. Further, addressing envelopes, typing labels, and typing on 3 X 5 note cards or other non-standard size documents is not user friendly on a CRT-based word processor system as the relationship between the screen and printer is not always obvious. This invention solves these problems in a straightforward, user-friendly way.
